The importance of digestive health in pets
The health of our pets digestive system has a huge influence over the health of the rest of their body. The digestive system is responsible for taking in food, digesting it and turning it into absorbable nutrition for the body.
The digestive system also is an important part of the immune system, by forming physical barrier to invading pathogens and acting as a source of information for the immune cells to respond to as needed.
The digestive system plays many important roles in keeping our pets healthy, it stands to reason that to optimise general health, our pets digestive system needs to be in great shape.
